Just picked mine up in Blanchardstown. No issues with them honoring the reduced price once I showed the email.

I carry a phone in a pouch to play music anyway.

Any one have any idea if they will open tomorrow? Or is the announcement earlier mean they are shut? The website is down

Would an Amazfit Bip be any good compared to the Garmin forerunner 235?

What are you using it for?

It's not a fitness watch, it's a running watch. Never heard of that brand before tbh

Garmin is a running watch for runners.
Amazfit Bip is for people who want to count how many steps they do in a day

I had an inkling that the big "close down" was going to happen, so rushed in on Monday to get two of them, because me and the missus had cheap crap fitness watches, that were combined with unfit crap iPhone apps, and didn't record more than 10% of anything pertinent.

Thanks again OP

I disagree, the Bip is a lot more useful that that. It's got it's own GPS, HR monitor and can track sports including running with reasonable enough accuracy for the majority of runners.

If you're serious about running though, get a garmin. The extras you can pair to it plus the data from the app itself, very handy
